Brazilian blowout and keratin treatments are hair smoothing treatments. They are use to straighten hair without causing any damage to the hair. These treatments bond protein to the outer layer of the hair. Thus, help smooth, protect, soften, and relax the hair. The bonding process takes place once a flat iron is applied.

Both treatments remove frizz, add shine, seal in color, and decrease blow dry time. However, a Brazilian blowout is often the preferred option. Before we get into the reasons why (Brazilian Blowout vs Keratin), let’s discuss these treatments in detail.

Why Brazilian Blowout?

The product used for this treatment gets its protein from a blend of amino acids. The results are incredible. Before applying the product, the hair undergoes shampoo and blow dry. After the application of the product, the blow drying and flat iron steps takes place. Also, when the hair is completely dry we shampoo the hair and completely rinse out the product. Finally we apply the bonding spray, rinse it out, and dry the hair one last time.

Why Keratin Treatment?

Similar to the Brazilian blowout keratin treatments start with shampooing the hair and drying it completely. Next, the application of the product is done with a shower cap between 20 to 30 minutes. Then, the hair is blow dried and flat-ironed. Clients leave the salon with the product in their hair and they cannot wash until after three days.

Benefits of Brazilian Blowout

One of the biggest benefits of receiving a Brazilian blowout is it is a lot more convenient. The process only takes about 90 minutes. Whereas, other keratin treatments take between two and three hours to finish and you still need to wash out the product after three days. Brazilian blowouts does not harm your hair in any way.

Another benefit of getting a Brazilian blowout is that the process is complete as soon as you leave the salon. You can do whatever you want with your hair and the look will last up to twelve weeks. As mentioned earlier, other keratin treatments require you to wait three full days before rinsing out the product at home. During that time you cannot do anything, such as putting your hair behind your ears or wearing barrettes or bobby pins.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Who is the best candidate for the Brazilian Blowout?

A. It has been our experience, that good candidates for the Brazilian Blowout are anyone who has frizzy, damaged or processed hair. We have performed the treatment on every hair type (fine/course/frizzy/curly), as well as hair that has been permed, Japanese straightened and extensions. In doing so, we have found that with proper communication and a well considered application, everyone can benefit from the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment.

Q. What kind of look will you get from the Brazilian Blowout?

A. The hair will be left totally frizz-free, shiny, effortlessly manageable and with plenty of body and bounce. There will still be the option to wear hair curly/wavy (depending on the hair type) and the freedom to blow dry hair smooth and straight in a fraction of the time invested prior to receiving the treatment.

Q. Can I still receive a Brazilian Blowout if I have highlights and/or color?

A. Yes, the Brazilian Blowout will actually improve the health of color-treated/highlighted hair by conditioning the hair while sealing the cuticle for enhanced color, reduced frizz and radiant shine.

Q. Is the Brazilian Blowout going to make my hair straight?

A. If your hair is wavy, the Brazilian Blowout will make your hair appear naturally straight and healthy. If your hair is very curly, it will minimize frizz while enhancing the appearance of the natural wave/curl. If you have straight, frizzy hair, this treatment will eliminate frizz and promote radiant shine.

Q. How long does the Brazilian Blowout last?

A. The Brazilian Blowout will last up to 12 weeks if the Açai After-Care Maintenance product line is used. The Brazilian Blowout is a cumulative treatment, in that the more you receive it, the healthier the hair will be and the longer the result will last.

Q. Can you apply the Brazilian Blowout directly on top of other relaxers and strengtheners?

A. Yes. The Brazilian Blowout actually works best on chemically treated hair, and helps to improve the hairs condition by fortifying each strand with essential amino acids. The Brazilian Blowout works great directly on top of a relaxer. Perform the relaxer first, Brazilian Blowout next, and then neutralize at the very end of both treatments. The Brazilian Blowout is great to perform when someone is trying to move away from having relaxers or Japanese straighteners. It puts movement back into the hair, allowing the hair to look its best.

Q. Will my hair lose volume if I receive the Brazilian Blowout?

A. No, your hair will not lose volume as a result of receiving the Brazilian Blowout. Your hair will maintain its natural volume and you will still receive great bend and memory when blow-drying and/or using a curling iron.

Q. Can you color your hair the same day you receive a Brazilian Blowout?

A. Yes, however, you must color your hair prior to having the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment.

Q. What is NOT a Brazilian Blowout?

A. If you were asked not to wash the same day when you had the treatment, it is not a Brazilian Blowout product.

Q. Is Brazilian Blowout and Keratin treatment the same?

A. Straight answer is NO. The Brazilian Blowout uses amino acids—which are much smaller molecules—allowing the treatment to be rinsed out the same day. Keratin must crystallize over 72 hours. This is one of the biggest differences between a Brazilian Blowout and a keratin treatment.

Q. Is Brazilian Blowout a Brand or a type of treatment?

A. There’s a big misconception about the Brazilian Blowout being a treatment. It is a BRAND of product that provides hair smoothing and frizz reduction treatment. Some salons and parlors uses the “Brazilian Blowout” as a classification of a treatment to promote a non-Brazilian Blowout brand or a knock-off (fake Brazilian Blowout) brands.
